A Good Feeling

One of the best parts of my job is holding the finished object in my hands, whether it's a book cover, a dvd, poster.. whatever. But it doesn't get better than this. 

To represent one of my favourite films of all time is a huge buzz. And it goes to show the importance of personal work - this was a piece of fan art a few years ago.. Now it's a cover for Del Toro's masterpiece. So if you are an illustrator just starting out - make sure you make time for your own work. It opens more doors than anything else you do...
